Mathematics is a way of ordering and thinking about the world. As soon as a child thinks of himself or herself (one) and others (more than one), the child is beginning to understand and learn math. Mathematical concepts develop through the hands-on use of materials such as manipulative, puzzles and Cuisenaire rods that allow children to discover and explore early math principles. When children are building in the block area, playing with sand, setting the table, taking only two crackers for snack, or following a recipe chart, they are developing mathematical skills and concepts including:

    •  Matching, sorting and grouping - recognizing differences and commonalities
    • Patterns and sequencing
    • One to one correspondence
    • Part/whole relationships
    • Spatial relationships
    • Number concepts.
